Draw Up A Network Map

It’s important to plan before you take any action, and the best way to plan for your next network upgrade is to draw up a network map. In fact, if you’ve previously had work done by a professional Maryland network company, you should have a network map already drawn up. If you haven’t, you’ll need to have one made before any work can be done.

Look for Any Bottlenecks

Most networks have high-use areas and low-use areas, the former can cause bottlenecks. If an area of your network has too high of a volume, it could require an upgrade. Get into contact with an experienced Maryland structured network company if you’re having connection speed issues, and they should be able to advise you.

Use Subnets and Divide Your Usage

If you run a small business then you may be fine with just one network, but as your business grows you may want to consider having subnets built into your network. Subnets segregate your network, meaning you can manage usage precisely. Think of it like a river with a series of dams, one where you control all the dams and choose whether or not to divert water.
